About Suzy Oubre

I am a true Entrepreneur. I've been self employed since 1995 starting my own business. I was the General Contractor for my home which was completed in 2007, with the help of many talented contractors and architect.

Suzy Oubre purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Suzy Oubre chose Woodland

This property was love a first sight; Situated above the valley and behind a beautiful Horse ranch. I wanted something close to Portland, but out in the country. I looked for 2 years for a parcel of land that was convenient to the freeway, and most importantly quiet. I didn't want to hear any major roads, freeways, or trains.... though on very foggy mornings you can hear the fog horns on the cargo ships that cruise the Columbia River Gorge.

Simple and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

Easy check in and check out instructions. Very private even though owners are near. Comfortable sleeping accommodations and great wide holeway that we used as game room for kids. Beautiful views. We enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure hosting you over your Thanksgiving holiday. Hopefully the extra table and chairs were sufficient for all your family. I mailed back your daughters markers and book yesterday.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Suzy's place worked out great! The unit was clean and the bed was comfortable. It is quite private as well. We made most of our meals in the unit and found it stocked for our needs. Having a good size refrigerator was a blessing. We also made good use of the washer/dryer. The location isn't too far away from Hwy 5 but you really feel like you are in the country. We could see the horses from the 40 acre ranch next door. We really enjoyed touring the area. We ventured to the Ape Caves and the Ape Canyon Trail with the limited time we had. The area is beautiful and the trails are gorgeous. The weather was good to us as well. Cassie, the Australian Shepherd, was there to greet us when we arrived. What a sweet dog!! We would recommend staying here and Suzy is a great host!

Peaceful retreat near Woodland

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Suzy's house near Woodland was quiet and peaceful, just as we had hoped. It is well situated, a few minutes off I-5 but far enough away that you feel in "the country". The listing description was accurate. The house was clean and the beds very comfortable. The only item that would improve the experience would be a better (larger) kitchen table with more comfortable chairs for having a sit-down family meal. The Family Diner in Woodland was a good place for breakfast/lunch.

If you want a beautiful home with a peaceful veiw, this is the home for you.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Suzy's Home Away From Home. My daughter and two granddaughter's came to Washington from Michigan. We stayed here for eight days and nights and wished that our stay would never end. Suzy and Cassie we very gracious and accommodating. We were far enough away from busy traffic but close enough to everything that Washington and Oregon have to offer.

Suzy's home came with more than we expected. Plenty of pillows, blankets, a welcome basket, coffee maker with coffee, hair blow dryer, plates, bowls, pots, pans, silverware, bowls, glassware, salt and pepper shakers, far too many items to mention.

Suzy pointed out fantastic places to dine and directions for places that we wanted to visit.

We could veiw the neighbors horses and listen to the peacocks and frogs.

We would definitely suggest this home to our friends and family.

Thank you Suzy and Cassie for the wonderful vacation. We promise, we will be back!

Perfect Get-Away Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to spend some time visiting the beautiful national parks at Mt. Rainier and check out Mt. St. Helens. Although Ape Caves was hard to walk to with the snow pack, we took some beautiful pictures on the way there. Later we visited Mt. St. Helens at the North entrance and had spectacular views of the volcano. The beds were very comfortable and the quiet environment was perfect to come back to after our adventures. Cassie, their Australian Shepard, made us feel welcomed just like home...

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a get-a-way. All the comforts of home with a postcard setting. Everything you need with a full kitchen , comfortable beds with a view second to none. Suzy was a great host. You're out in the woods but just a short drive to civilization. You wont be sorry you stayed here!
